What is a Local Area Network (LAN)? A Local Area Network is a group of computers and related devices that share a common communications line. The connected devices are typically within a small geographic area such as an office building or a home. What is a DHCP server? A DHCP server assigns IP addresses to devices on a network. Your Vonage V-Portal is by default configured to work as a DHCP Server for devices connected to its LAN port. What is Lease Time? Lease time is the amount of time that a computer or device on a network will be allowed connection to the router using their current IP address . When the lease time expires, a new dynamic IP address will automatically be assigned by the DHCP server. Is it necessary to configure any settings to setup my Local Area Network (LAN)? Your Vonage Phone Adapter is by default configured to work as a DHCP Server and therefore no additional steps are necessary to setup a LAN. If you’d like to connect an additional device, such as a PC, video game console, router or DVR, to your Vonage Phone Adapter, you can simply plug the device into the Ethernet port on the back of your Vonage device.(This is assuming that the device you are plugging in to the Vonage Phone Adapter Ethernet port has DHCP enabled. If not, follow the manufacturer’s instructions to enable DHCP.). We do not recommend you change any of the default network settings unless you have networking knowledge. More... If I previously made changes to my DHCP server settings and need to re-configure my Local Area Network (LAN), how do I do it? If you’ve previously made changes to your DHCP server settings (either enabled DHCP relay or turned off your DHCP server) and would like to enable the DHCP server again you will need to setup your Local Area Network. More... I want to configure my LAN to use Static IP addresses, how do I turn off the DHCP server option? If you would like to configure your LAN to use Static IP addresses, select the Disable DHCP Server radio button. This option should only be used by people with extensive networking knowledge . You will then need to set Static IP addresses on the device(s) connected to the Vonage Phone Adapter.
